  • Iced chocolate and stuffed potato was fantastic. Quick service. Have returned after being disappointed over a year ago. Sign implies that their staff are rude and that that is okay, not sure if this intent. Friendly and polite staff make people feel welcome. Passionfruit and mango ball should be avoided. Outdoor eating area could do with a revamp.
  • Great handmade chocolates with an awesome chocolate tour that you can walk around and read about the history. It also has some of the old chocolate ads for you to sit down and watch. You can also go to the shop and watch them make some chocolate while you buy some of the goodness.
  • lots of delicious chocolate on offer along with souvenirs, clothing, toys and a museum, which is not free. There are free tasters on offer. Plenty of parking and a very attractive cafe with plenty of delicious food choices. Very clean place.
  • Too sweet. The syrup in the chocolates made me feel sweet. Kiwis need to cut down on sugar. Chocolate was nice.
  • Was expecting a possible tour of the chocolate factory with my golden ticket in hand. But the museum is more history than anything. There is a viewing platform but is limited. The food at the cafe is great and the iced chocolate is to die for. Coffee is goid as well. Recommend for adults. Not so much for kids. However must say that staff were very accomodating for kids.

Where to stay in Napier

pier boasts a range of accommodations, most located on the tip of land that ends at the Port of pier. From boutique Art Deco hotels and rental apartments to backpacker hostels, the central district offers options for many tastes and price ranges. With the city's buildings so attractive, a sea view may not be as much of a deal-breaker as it is elsewhere. Farther out of town, you can choose from an array of more economical motels, or at a campsite.
